Looks like the Nexus isn't going anywhere....so who's making the next Nexus?
With all the talk of Android silver it seemed like the Nexus was going to it's grave. According to Dave Burke, head of Android engineering:
"People just get excited by concepts and forget why we do things," Burke told me in an interview. "We are still invested in Nexus."
When we are working, there are sort of two outputs. We’re building a Nexus device and we’re building the open source code. There is no way you can build the open source code without the phone or tablet or whatever you are building. You have to live and breathe the code you are developing.
You can’t build a platform in the abstract, you have to build a device (or devices). So, I don’t think can can or will ever go away. And then, I think Nexus is also interesting in that it is a way of us explaining how we think Android should run. It is a statement, almost a statement of purity in some respects. I don’t see why we would ever turn away from that, it wouldn’t make sense.
